- District 204 offers a variety of academic programs to meet the needs of our students. Although assessment occurs throughout the school year for all students, some programs require the gathering of additional information in order to determine appropriate
placement. Our identification process for Project Arrow and Accelerated Math programs includes the use of multiple measures when considering the total child for academic programming. We consider standardized and normed assessment data including, but not limited to, the following: Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT), Iowa Assessment (Iowa), aimswebPlus, classroom assessments and students’ learning characteristics.
If you are interested in discussing this further, please talk with your child’s classroom teacher during the upcoming parent-teacher conference.
